Simple Church Study
I live not far away from Jane Austens home in Chawton. There is a beautiful church in the village that has always attracted my brush and I have painted it over the years in many different ways. But today I really was simply playing with watercolour and gaining a few ideas for my week ahead. I am so fortunate in that we are surrounded by beautiful churches with incredible architecture.
This really is a very simple study, not intended as a finished painting. It is more of an exploration into working with a landscape.
I keep small pieces of watercolour paper for moments like this. Days when I know I should take a complete break but in my heart know that would be impossible. I am a true addict when it comes to working with my favourite medium.
Tomorrow will come and I know my studio is ready, my easel awaits with a clean fresh piece of large paper.
